Breakfast, Dinner, And Preparation For Chinese New Year.

For the past 2 weeks, I have been busy spring cleaning my house. I have been procrastinating in the cleaning job for too long. Even with the cleaning job, we still keep to our morning walking exercise and early morning breakfast. Here are some of the breakfasts and dinner we have been enjoying.
 Breakfast - Ban mee (soup version) at Restoran Bandaraya, Ipoh.
If you are not prepared to wait, then you better not order from this stall.
 Spicy Ban Mee (dry version)
 This soup comes with the dry version Ban Mee.
 Breakfast - Rice vermicelli with roast pork, bbq pork & shredded chicken in plain soup. I enjoy the soup version more than the curry. Took this breakfast at Restoran Sun Heng, Canning Garden.
 Western style breakfast at Pusat Makanan Sun Hor Lok, Persiaran Greenhill.
Breakfast - Teluk Intan style chee cheong fun at Restoran Yei Lock, Jalan Kampar.
 Dinner - Grilled Lamp Arab style at GP, Taman Pertama. 
 Dinner - Porridge (minced pork, salted egg & century egg) at GP, Taman Pertama.
 Black jelly - cold dessert - from the Chinese medical shop.
 Love this chilled black jelly dessert with some syrup from the small tub.

I was busy making Chinese New Year snacks - Chinese sweet meat (bak kwa).
 Minced pork
 Marinate ingredients added.
 Stirred thoroughly into a sticky paste.
Chinese sweet meat (less dark soya sauce)

Blessed are those who listen to me,

watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway.

For those who find me find life and receive favor from the LORD.

  6. The Lamb dish for me please. So very good that you can make your own bak kwa again and again now and you know exactly what you put into them - no preservative at all! Very nice!

  13. I never mind waiting in a restaurant as generally it means it is being cooked fresh and you are not getting food that has been hanging around. Keep well Diane
